It seems like it. There was a time when "guest appearances" meant something greater.

    I also like how the game is now, where other artist do freestyles to the beats and kind of Debo their verse onto the later released remix.

    Mixtapes and random song drops killed the remix. Now there's 100 versions of the same song. When "A Mili" dropped everybody had a version, no need for a remix

    Ahh the days where a remix had a diff beat, a guest verse and a new verse from the original rapper.

    Nowadays rick ross can come out with a song with meek and french montana on the original and the remix have the same beat, same verses, but this time T.I wanted to drop a struggle verse.

    Co Fucking Sign!
    I remember when u heard a hot song and they put the remix out, u couldn't wait to see who is on it.
    Like Black Rob's "Whoa" was killing the game and then they put the remix out and it killed the game too.

    We can really blame this shit on DJ Khaled, he watered down the heavy features on his "albums" lol.
    Nigga to me is not a real DJ and Khaled does not rap or produce anything and he acts like he is the star of the album just because he is screaming like a bitch on the songs and saying nigga.

    I agree, but Made you look remix would've been the original song in 2012.
    Thats the point that i'm making. I hate that its like that. Special "Guest Appearances" don't add that weight it used to have..

    I would like to add that the Flava In Ya Ear remix was dope. It doesn't work in all cases though.
